Robert E. Lee Portrait
ONE KIND OF PATRIOTISM.
"RESOLVED, That, AS DEMOCRATS,
we 'are determined to adopt no Affirmative Policy,' but merely to embarrass the
Government by every means in our power, and especially by sympathizing with
Traitors, and trying in every way to tie the hands of the President!"
"RESOLVED, That we
base our claim to Popular Favor on the slowness and inefficiency of the
Administration in putting down the Rebellion!"
Ann S. Stephens's Last and Best.
BEADLE'S DIME NOVELS, No. 56, to
issue June 20th, will complete a superb story of Frontenac's time, viz.:
Or, The Governor's Indian Child.
By MRS. ANN S. STEPHENS.
One of the most novel, exciting,
and effective of all of Mrs. Stephens's productions. It has in it enough of
drama, character, and passion for three ordinary books. It must be read by all
who love a brilliant and thoroughly composed historical romance.
Sold by all Newsmen and Sutlers.

"The American Enamelled Steel
Collar Company" are now manufacturing their superior Steel Collars for
gentlemen's wear. They are much superior to the foreign article, now so much
patronized in Europe. They have all the dressy elegance of the finest linen, and
are bound to stand up—can't be made to wilt under any amount of heat, pressure,
or perspiration, and can be adjusted as readily as the linen. Army Officers and
Travellers especially should provide themselves with one. A wipe of the sponge,
and out it comes, cleaned, starched, ironed, and standing up for service.
Enclose One Dollar to "American Enamelled Steel Collar Co.," Box 5173, Post
